arabia? >> well, the obvious is 9/11 for america. 15 of th19 hijackers are saudis. i tried to explain in my book how it was basically a saudi quarrel fought out on american soil with american victims. al qaeda, bin laden dedicated to bringing down the house of saad couldn't do it in saudi arabia with the near enemy as they called him so they came to america and attacked the far enemy. you paid the price for your years of friendship and cleness with saudi arabia. tavis: i was about to ask why did we end up being at the top of that list. you explain it now. you talk about it in the book, the price that we had to pay for our friendship with the saudis. >> well, it's america who exploited, discovered and developed saudi oil. back in the 1930's, the saudis chose america rather than the british, rather than us because we had been meddling in the middle east. the king of saudi arabia at the time liked the idea that america were far away. they would come and develop the oil and go away. america is on the other side of the world. after the war, the second world war, suddenly, saudi arabia disc

and we will talk to jason deparle about poverty in america and the economy. from the nation's capital, this is " washington journal." host: the supreme court ruled 5- 4 to allow corporations to spend as much as the want to support or oppose individual candidates. the ruling is likely to also allow labor unions to send unlimited funds. the justices kept in place, though, a century old ban on corporate donations directly to any one candidate. let us kickoff today's " washington journal" talking about the supreme court decision. the phone lines -- send us a tweet at c-spanwj or e-mail us at "the washington post" on this story. the court also overturned a ban on corporations and unions airing campaign ads in the 30 days before primary and 60 days before a general election. also in "the washington post" this morning they talk about the reaction on capitol hill. inside "the washington post" its quotes senator charles schumer -- bound to push for new restrictions on corporate political spending, including limits for companies with government contracts, sharehold

>> glenn: welcome to a special edition of the glenn beck program. the story of america is one of self-reliance and optimism, and profound faith. not only in the context of religious freedom, but also in the unprecedented faith in the ability of human beings to control their own destiny. while the spirit of personal responsibility was strong with our founders, great patriots like thomas payne, he argued for redistribution of wealth off the bat. and alexander hamilton wanted a central bank. they wound up losing those battles but plenty kept can on fighting. the constitution kept those dogs at bay for better part of 200 years. eventually those seeking a different path than the ones the founders settled on realized the only way to really defeat the constitution was for the people to stop reading it. progressives realized victory required changing history. to defeat them, we have to correct that. progressives know how powerful history is. when these truths get told and the lies get corrected, the game is going to be on. it's pulling the mask off the monster. next week, we'll dive d

business in america, which we will do. there's an argument there, that's true. i don't think proprietary trading caused the crisis, but there are problems with it. we have not just had the problems of the crisis. we've had problems of individual investors and others not being treated fairly. paul volcker, who is certainly no enemy of wall street, has been the one most concerned about the proprietary trading. and we're talking about saying, if you have a deposit insurance guarantee with the federal government, you shouldn't be using that to help do this proprietary trading. the other thing we say is this, i don't want the banks making their money from this kind of trading and investments. i want them to make their money by loans. to some extent, this is aimed at getting the banks more into the lending business, which frankly they've moved away from too far. >> the other critique of this, i've heard, is that it basically targets mainstream banks, where most americans have an account with bank of america, a citibank, jpmorgan chase, wells fargo. it does not get after the issue of the too bi

america's political debate. they're laws that have been upheld multiple times by the supreme court. like in 1990 when the supreme court ruled it was constitutional to restrict corporate political spending or 2003 when the supreme court ruled specifically that the mccain/feingold corporate campaign finance rules were okay. today in one of the most radical supreme court actions in years justice roberts and alito and their five member conservative majority overthrew at least a decade of settled law and congressional action and multiple supreme court precedence to wipe those laws away. corporations are free to inject unregulated billions, absolutely unlimited money into the political system now. if you are a regular person who has ever made a campaign donation before, forget about ever having to do that again. what's the point in individual people trying to influence politics with donations if exxon or some other company can quite literally match and therefore cancel out the combined donations of every single individual donor in the nation whenever it wants? in one check? and it can do it ev
survivors. president obama sends jitters through the stock market. his talk of reform ating america's banks worries investors. >> we must have peace at any cost. war is not the only way forward. >> 7:00 a.m. in washington. china is rejecting a call from the u.s. secretary of state. following a threat from the search engine google. authorities are accusing mrs. clinton on what they are describing as information imperial ix. jo we look to the chinese authorities to conduct a thorough debut that led google to make its announcement countries that rtrict free access risk walling themselves off from the progress of the next century. >> we are seeing this warning from china like saying back off. the response from the chinese the roundless ack useation can harm the u.s. formulation. the u.s. is open here and it wants good formulation. expressing comments and support when it comes to attacks on china. certainlyly it was known but a very set piece. china was one of the few countries singled out for controlling information on the internet. china responding, trying to say back off and leave this round
with the professor and my viewpoint is that a majority of people in america disagree with us. and 2 and 2 equals 4 and this is a no spin zone fact that we lost in massachusetts because we lost the debate on health care and the american people see health care as a -- our proposal, i think incorrectly but still our fault that they see it this way as big government, high taxes, and fiscal irresponsibility. that's not where the country is. barack obama did show leadership, did try his best the same way that bill clinton did with the same result. and i want to say one more thing, bill, about your comeb tear. -- commentary. don't be too sure that after the 1994 debacle that you aren't predicting this was all over for bill clinton and look what happened. >> bill: i wasn't on the air then. >> too soon to be barack obama -- >> bill: lanny, i didn't predict it's all over for president obama. i just said he lost power. but, after you wrote your column, saying that, you know, the folks are just not seeing it our way, you got attacked by the far left, the same people we saw in the montage. what did they say ab
to future job creation do you view the resurrection of sound banking law in america? >> very important. in fact, in my judgment, the greatest single drag on a recovery is the fact that small business cannot get access to capital, and the banks need to be involved, and they need to be doing more than they're doing. and the president spoke to the needs to have appropriate protective regulation. i think we're going to see appropriate financial institutions regulated in a way that will prevent what has happened from happening again. but i want this administration and our banks to work to make sure that our business community, our small business community especially, has access to capital. jobs will be created, expansions will be made, and investments will occur if we can get access to capital. profitable businesses that have paid their bills, done everything right, are telling me that they cannot get access to capital. and that's a huge, huge problem. >> last question for you. looking at your state tax revenues, you've done a very good job of reducing your overhead. i can see you've done a
what amounts to the facilitation of a corporate coup to rule america, you can kiss this country good-bye. >> justice stevens wrote in the dissent, congressman, the framers took it as a given that corporations could be comprehensively regulated in the service of the public welfare. why is it that judges are only called activists when they rule against what conservatives want? >> i wish i knew, but the same five judges today who have overturned 103 years of settled law and relied upon no precedent to do so, these are the same judges who gave us george bush for eight years. they have their own agenda and it's time we stopped pretending otherwise. the supreme court has become utterly politicized and the result of that is what you see here today. >> justice stevens also wrote in the dissents although they make enormous contributions to our society corporations are not actually members of it. they cannot vote or run for office because they may be managed and controlled by nonresidents. their interests may conflict in fundamental respect with the interests of eligible voters. does the decis
be of particular concern to president obama. his column is called "has obama lost white america?" buchanan explains how the racial breakdown of the vote in recent elections, massachusetts, new jersey and virginia could spell trouble for the president. in 2008, barack obama took a larger share of the white vote, 44% than either john kerry or al gore had done before him, but since then, republicans have won these three major races because there were more white voters, and republicans swept that vote in what they're calling reagan-like landslides. so here's the question -- how have your views of president obama changed during his first year in office? go to, post a comment on my blog. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> president obama meanwhile, is promises americans in the heartland today that he'll never stop fighting to give them jobs. he took his new more populist pitch to ohio. our senior white house correspondent ed henry filed this report. he's traveling with the president. >> reporter: wolf, the president had a town hall meeting here, and what was interesting is this was his mo

america need to know about scott brown? >> trust him. >> reporter: what does america need to know about him? >> i think scott acknowledges he's got a learning curve going to washington learning the rules of the senate and the ways. scott is a tenacious campaigner, tireless worker. so i think he's going to roll up his sleeves i think the nation will see him get very involved. i think they are going to be interested to know he's the routine guy, puts out his crash, gets his mail. really always wanted to be someone -- was what he represents. >> reporter: we are at the gas station where scott gets his pick-up truck worked on. joe is probably the last guy to work on the trouble what is the truck like? >> he keeps it up, keeps service, runs great. 200,000 miles on it now i think. >> reporter: rob has lived next door to scott brown for 20 years. you are here at the end of the cul-de-sac. now senator elect scott brown in the house behind me. what is it like? >> he mows his lawn, takes out the trash. he doesn't have a fancy car that's his truck that is his truck. >> reporter: he does drive a tru
